Michael Mozina (http://www.bautforum.com/member.php?u=5952) -- or did you mean considered most knowledgeable by others?

I don't know. But, why just one name? Surely many different people are knowledgeable about the many different aspects of the sun. Is there some particular aspect you're interested in? Or are you really just after the top sun expert.

yes, that's that, the top expert. I know that there are some especialized on flares, others on susnpots, others on nuclear reactions, etc, but I guess that must be someone that it's over the rest in quality

The person you are seeking doesn't exist. Look up the past recipients of the Hale Prize to find members of the American Astronomical Society that are viewed as the top experts. But they all have their areas of greatest expertise. There is no one who knows more than anyone else about every aspect of the Sun. Can you give one name who knows more than anyone else about history?
